- All media tend to centralise over time. I hope the internet is the exception that breaks the rule (despite signs that online attention is getting increasingly aggregated.)
- Tangential: science fiction often predicts the future and then, ironically, stops being fiction — the nets in ender’s game seem eerily like thought-blips on twitter.
